Melancholy Man

Posted on 7 CommentsPosted in life

I used to look at my past and shudder. I did some terrible things that only youth would let you get away with. I deliberately avoid people and places that link me to the past because I’m ashamed to introduce my present to it, but recently I’ve been looking at it with exceptionally rose tinted glasses. Every now and again I look back and rather than recoil with disgust I actually miss it. I miss the fun and reckless abandonment. I miss the spontaneity and care free attitude towards life.

Compromise

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Marriage

Compromise is absolutely key to a marriage. You will never find someone who is so absolutely in sync with you that you will not, at some point, have to submit to your partner’s will. But I’m increasingly finding that the only “right” compromise seems to be my compromise.

I'm not naive enough to believe that women actually want men to do the dishes, they more likely want men to want to do the dishes for them. Doing something that you and probably everyone else in the world doesn't want to do for the person you love shows that not only you appreciate them, but you're willing to do something you really can't stand just to please them, so in a sense the man isn't wanting to do the dishes, he's wanting to please her. Any women reading this can correct me if I'm way off the mark, but I'm trying to understand.
